    Always pleased to be able to visit a seat of government and this one has so much history. Amazing design, especially the dome. Worth taking the guided tour.

    The Brandenburg Gate is always worth visiting. I arrived at this iconic building to find a demonstration was taking place. Punctuated by selections played by a brass band, several speakers called for as full restoration of music education in German schools. Good for them!

    A really good explanation of the build up to the rise of the Nazi party in 1930s Germany. Very heavy and a lot of text but I felt I needed to go. The audio guide provided on your phone with free WiFi is excellent.

    The memorial is impressive, and it certainly inspires thought. Calling the experience "excellent" is a bit of a misnomer. The Memorial is imposing and sobering, reminding one of one of the greatest crimes, perhaps the greatest crime, in history.

    Visited today, arrived or Nordbahnof, this itself is a very interesting place. The photos around show you how the station was sealed off along with lots to read.
    Across the road is the memorial, you can stand in the middle of the walls. Lots of information as you walk around, then across the road is the viewing tower and exhibition, you can go up to the 5th floor to look over with the watch tower. Lots of photos and information inside. Further down the road is the gift/bookshop with interesting books in all languages including ones for children which explain it. Can’t believe there is no charge either. Well worth a visit which is full of information and makes you realise how the wall divided people including through the cemetery.

    This is a fabulous Museum filled to the brim with middle eastern history and artefacts. You can certainly learn a lot here.

    It was good to see apart of the iconic Berlin history and it was great to get an insight into how the wall has been remodeled to resemble something so sad in a beautiful way. There was one issue with the wall which was that infront of the iconic car drawing there was a man standing there forcing people to get into photos with him, playing a violin and then asking for payment. I took photos from afar however if you wanted to take a decent photo of the drawing you would have to pay this man which is a total SCAM!!!

    With no less than 5 museums to choose from plus of course The Dome you must choose carefully as which ones you want to visit. Realistically it's impossible to see more than 2 or 3 in a day so you may want to come more than once. Either way you won't be disappointed.

    It's worth a visit to the Dome which does dominate the skyline if just for the view. The steps to the top are not too bad if you take your time and the interior is impressive as Cathedrals tend to be.

    I love a good zoo, and this by far is one of the best I have visited.
    Buy your tickets online before hand they are cheaper.
    The animals were great. The zoo was so clean and tidy. Plenty of place to grab a bit to eat.
    We ended up spending near enough the whole day here. So don't rush around or you may miss something

    This is one of the major urban parks in the capitals of the world. It was part of the British sector when Berlin was sectioned off by the allies in WWII. It commences opposite the Brandenburg Gate and is the site of many memorials remembering the dead.
    It is also very green, beautiful and a gorgeous place to stroll around.

    I loved the whole Museum Island experience which makes for a fabulous day out - the day tickets are excellent value but you still need to book time slots even with these - and watch the time as you can easily spend hours looking and learning. There is a lot to look at and learn here with wonderful history and artefacts. In contrast to some of the reviews I found the staff nothing but courteous. I had no problems at all photographing pretty much everything.

    We had a walk around after paying our €2 enterance fee, and settled at one of the bars for drinks before getting a vegan sausage, cabbage, dumplings and sauce bowl (so tasty!) and a bratwurst! Fun spot to people watch, enjoy some traditional live music, and soak in the atmosphere.

    This is a small and free to enter museum next to Friedrichstrasse station. This was one of the crossing points between East and West Berlin and some of the actual immigration/security check points are located within the museum. The name Palace of Tears is derived from the tears of those who left loved ones behind or waved off love ones as they crossed the border. There museum is full of memorabilia, photos and commentary on what life was like when the wall still existed.
